    To longshot owners who have taken their guns apart

    Post  splosionman on Sun Oct 11, 2009 4:37 am

    I have recently bought a longshot and want to modd it but I can get the orange bolt grip off If you know what I mean. Is there anyway to get it off, preferably without breaking anything?

    I think you can also use a claw hammer

    Dont use a claw hammer it scrapes the paint off the gun, just use a flat head screwdriver works the best, and dont be afraid of using force.

    Mine was loose enough that i could pull it off by hand.
    I suggest using a screwdriver, if it doesn't just "pop" off.

    you dont need to drill it out, you just need to cut those 3 sticks thats holding the round piece (you should see it when you remove the spring chamber). then all the air restrictor should fall out, thats how i did mine.

    their not even hard to cut i actually sawed them out with an apple corer (no small wire cutters) oh and when they come out your gun will be loud so no stealth once first dart is gone.

    Sorry I worked this out for myself I had a stupid moment. But more problems.
    I have added a nightfinder spring and a wipeout resistor springs and taken out all the saftes.When I prime the gunI have to pull really hard several times to get the cache to take hold. Why is this.
    I checked nerf haven but that place is a maze. And What have you got against longshots roger explosion.

    Edit:I also glued two pieces of foam to the plunger to protect my hearing

    on.

    Edit:I also glued two pieces of foam to the plunger to protect my hearing

    Myself and Tidge discussed this, and after much debate we concurred that the answer is thus

    GET TEH BUUFFZZ NOOOB!!!1!!!shiftone





    . In all seriousness.... the longshot is a very complex gun with very small tolerances an clearances in the breech mechanism. You can just add things.. the foam you have added is the problem here, it means the plunger head will fall just short of the catch most tries.. also with those added springs you'll want a stronger catch spring or your catch wont be able to take it...

    also finally to fix the problem of the gun being tough to prime i'll reitterate

    GO GET TEH BUUUFZZ!!!1!

    sorry for being nooby but I did replace the catch spring, and took the foam off incase this was the problem.
    I gave up looking on nerf haven a while ago and It seems that people either live with it or my gun is screwed up.
    I intend to get another spring and angel breach it(eventually) so Ill make it key ring primed which shold fix the problem.

    I'm through with this thread so mabye someone shold lock it.
    What the f*ck does BUUFFZZ mean

    I think you've just added too many springs to it. Mine has the stock Ls spring and i added a nitefinder spring. It works well.

    @ Aj that's why i rock the Ls, because I am TEH BUFFFSSS.

    Where the hell did you get a BBB spring? I'm going to the hardware store on wednesday to get two c836 springs(one for my nite finder). The advantage with a keyring primed gun is you can go spastic with the springs you put in there, however I might have to do a bit of reinforcement on the plunger. By the way does anyone know for shure if you can get C836 springs from hardware stores.

    Oh, and mine is yellow

    uh... not true


    sure the boltsled can snap with extra springs, and keyring priming fixes this. but the catch spring will need beefing up if you go "spastic with the springs"

    and to the dude with the BBB spring in it.. give it time I reckon... these things dont break overnight but watch out because its a pretty common occurrence

    When ever you put extra springs in a nerf gun its possible it will break. So you need to reinforce.

    How many times do I have to say it?! I have replaced the catch spring with a stronger one.
